Library

Do you need to keep up-to-date with health management information?

The Health Planning and Management Library can help you

 

The Health Planning & Management Library provides information on management, health services management, and health facilities planning and design. You can access information on topics such as organisational change, leadership, human resource management, leadership, lean thinking, quality, primary health services and aged care.

The Library maintains a small, but focused collection of print journals, books and reports, including many HOSPLAN and other related materials that are unique in Australia.  This is supplemented with access to full-text bibliographic databases which provide the latest knowledge in the health management and planning domain.

The Library is open to anyone who would like to use the resources and facilities. Charges apply for photocopying and some services. Bookings are essential.
